California Dogface Butterfly Biology:

The California dogface butterfly is only found in California and became California’s official state insect in 1972.

This species is commonly found in the San Bernardino and Santa Mountains and in chaparral and woodland habitats in Southern California. Adults are attracted to moist regions with moist soils.

The California dogface butterfly will nectar on many species of flowers, but the adults especially like blue gilia, sunflowers, and thistle blooms. To create your own butterfly habitat and to support the caterpillars, avoid the use of pesticides and plant locally native false indigo bushes (Amorpha californica orAmorpha fruticosa) which the caterpillars feed exclusively upon

Lore: Butterflies remind us to pay attention and listen to our intuition, feelings, and senses. Butterfly magic can be available to us as we navigate through spiritual rebirth, transformation, and hope.
